stop the emails of this addon

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

My customer has got the following add on installed but she says is getting loads of emails every day, she said in a space of 3 hours she has had 20 emails from this add on

 

Is there a way to stop the emails being sent or slow them down or send them to a txt file instead

Kind regards

 

Ian

So these are legitimate intrusion attempt warning emails, but there are so many of them that they're overwhelming? I'd first see if this add-on can be configured to ignore some/most of these cases that aren't really serious. That's a judgement call. If the email volume is still too high, it ought to be possible to find where it's mailing a report, and just append that text to a server file instead. Once or twice a day, on a "cron job", see if the log file has content (non-zero size), and if it does, email it to the admin (simply "cat" the file), then empty out the file. This should all be possible with a "bash script" running on the server (Linux only -- maybe something similar can be done with Windows).

Thank you for the replies, appreciate it and the info Phil

 

Cause I spotted after that no one has posted in it since January 2013 so was not sure if it was still active anymore
